Redwood City, California Speed Traps
There’s a lot of parking lots in this area where cops like to camp out and get people for blowing stop signs or for speeding. If you are going down this road south bound, note that the cops like to also give out tickets closer to 5th Ave since there’s a school there. I received a ticket turning onto Bay Road from Hurlingame Ave and see the same cop there all the time now.
Traveling North on Veteran’s Blvd, there are apparently some signs stating you cannot turn right onto Whipple Ave unless you are going to proceed onto 101 South. There is a motorcycle cop on the Whipple Ave bridge that crosses 101 every day and he always has someone he’s caught.
Canyon Road & Oak Knoll has been a hotspot lately. A motorcycle cop wrote tickets all day yesterday (Sunday) and he is there today again (Monday) July 19th.
I stopped counting at 10 but I think they must be writing far more than that.
I got a ticket in San Mateo on 3rd yesterday for a clear U-turn into parking- another hidden motorcycle cop. They are going wild this month amid the cuts and layoffs.
Motorcycle officer sits in the dark shade on the sidewalk under the overhang of the building that houses a Taco Shop, Cafe, and Hair Salon, watching the intersection. Yesterday on Sunday July 18th I counted 10 pullovers / tickets before I stopped counting yesterday. It’s somewhat annoying to hear the siren every five minutes from where I live.
Now there is an officer there again today doing the same thing.
Westbound at just past Woodside Plaza NO U-TURN only left turn ONLY, drivers going into Shell Station must make U-turn, Police sit there and it will cost you over $300 for this illegal U-Turn. ROAD IS NOT MARKED PROPERLY.I reported to CALTRANS and Redwood City Council. Mayor and Public works and CALTRANS agreed with me! New Highway Traffic safety sign Laws, take effect 2012. Woodside Rd. is ticket paradise!
